Who wouldve guessed the entire universe would be a-twitter over Lady Ms dinner frock? Ah well, it is New York Fashion Week: when a young mens fancy turns to runway dreams.
Dreams, nightmares - what difference, at this point, does it make?
I know it conflicts with the Sochi Olympics, butt whats more important - a once-every-4-year event in which the worlds finest athletes gather to compete for their countries and hopefully win a place on the medal podium, or a semi-annual runway competition to see who can make anorexic girls (and boys) look the most fantastically foolish?
So much creativity, so few gold medals for effort
The last 2 pictures, above, are from Thom Brownes Fall 2014 womens collection. His menswear offerings (below) may shed more light on the, uh, challenging aspects of his womens collection.
Yes, these are from the mens collection
I think Thom intends to capitalize on his Big White connections:
At a luncheon held in the East Room, the ceremony honored representatives in every category of design from architecture to technology, butt the fashion design is always the most anticipated announcement. This year the honor went to Thom Browne, an outstanding American designer who reinvented the mens shrunken suit,
to land one of those juicy government contracts reserved for preferred capitalist cronies, to design the uniforms for our new civilian national security force:
Just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded
Yes, thats lipstick on the toy soldiers. And if you have a problem with that youre probably a racist homophobe.
Other designers presented more traditional (by comparison) offerings. This little number, for example, from the ever creative Betsy Johnson, perhaps paying homage to one of her early role models:
No silly! Not Phyllis Diller, Lady M!
Black sparkles and statement necklace practically scream NY Fashion Week
So, to pick up our spirits after the inevitable post State Dinner let down and to commemorate NY Fashion Weeks wrap up Im introducing a new, this weekend only, Olympic fashion event: Who Wore it Better
I see Sara B already kicked this competition off yesterday with this submission:
Here is my own offering for the French State Dinner gown Who Wore it Better challenge:
Lady M or Cinderella?
Be sure to tune in this weekend, when our competition heats up all previous frocks are fair game and it will be a participation sport. So do your homework, as MOTUS intends to lay low and watch the Olympics.

Moochelle’s dress is hideous, just like she is.
Those things are designed by people who HATE women... why else would you expect to actually SELL those styles?
Michelle has a train on the back of that dress that she dragged across the floor. I would love to see her two pooches taking a ride on it, but I don’t know how to do photoshop.
